Small hotel but is has a great location near subway stations and places of interest. They offer a good breakfast and staff is helpful and speaks English and Spanish. They have Wi-Fi available in all rooms and public areas. The hotel is on the road most people use to get to or from the Christ the Redeemer statue. There are... More

This is my 3rd time staying here. This time was during the WC, so Rio hotels were incredibly expensive. This one was one of the few that was somewhat reasonable, but I had several issues during my stay. First, the lock on the door didn't work properly. It would always take about a minute or two of trying the get... More

Had a couple of nights here, was a nice hotel. Good location, close to the Metro (Gloria station) and bus routes, and there is a taxi rank just outside the hotel. Also close to a number of shops, bars/cafes and banks with ATMS. The rooms themselves were fine - clean, comfortable with the usual mod cons - wifi, air con,... More

Hotel Monte Castello Rua Cândido Mendes 201 in Rio de Janeiro Hotel is not reliable. I first booked for a standard room a year in advance (no air conditioning ). I then cancelled that reservation when I discovered the temperature in Rio in February were often above 35ºC and made a new reservation for an air conditioned room. After a... More

This is a nice shot in a city where every hotel is expensive. If you're looking for a cheap and good hotel, try it. The hotel is close of all Rio de Janeiro attractions (Corcovado, Pão de Açúcar, Copacabana beach, city center). It's small but clean and efficient accommodation for solo travelers and young couples. Taxi on the door, few... More

This hotel is a few blocks from the Gloria Metro Station. It is a basic hotel, with small, air-conditioned rooms, cable tv and breakfast. The bathroom is very small and this isn't the type of room you would want to spend the day in. However, it is comfortable, clean and convenient. There is no elevator, so if you can't deal... More

The hotel has a very nice position, in the hearth of Rio, walking distance from the traditional Lapa and its nice bars and also more exclusive Flamengo. Very close to the airport. Rooms are good sized, most of them internal but with a window to the patio, a/c or fan. If you're stayng for a few nights, this is a... More

In a micro-neighborhood of Flamengo is typical Rio with Int'l. travellers too; next to Swiss consulate and a bit noisy; near/2 blocks from Metro Gloria & 15min. walk from LAPA; very minimal rooms w/ breakfast; relatively affordable for the 'new' Rio. Room 401 will give you a show of Rio's daily routines. Near area Catete/15 by foot with Presidential Palace... More
